Rodgers has been brilliant thus far in 2020 as the Packers sit atop of the NFC North division at 8-3.
Entering week 13 , Rodgers leads the NFL in quarterback rating (117.6), he's second in the NFL in QBR (85.1), he's sixth in the league in passing yards (3,100), and leads the league in passing touchdowns (33). Incredible.
Rodgers' excellence continued through week 13 as well, with two early touchdowns, helping the Packers take an early 14-3 lead against the Philadelphia Eagles.
With the second touchdown throw, Aaron Rodgers actually set a new NFL record and created a new personal milestone.
.@AaronRodgers12 throws his 400th career passing TD!
7th player in NFL history to reach that mark. #GoPackGo

Aaron Rodgers has become the first player in NFL history to have five seasons of at least 35 passing touchdowns.
You would think that in a league filled with so many talented quarterbacks that this feat would have been accomplished, but Aaron Rodgers is the first.
This statistic is definitely a representation of two things.
First, this stat illustrates how good Aaron Rodgers really is. Rodgers is consistently a top three quarterback year in and year out.
Regardless of weapons, age, or circumstance, Rodgers always seems to find a way to put up fantastic numbers. His longevity as an elite quarterback is truly remarkable.
Second, this stat should show how difficult it is to throw 35 touchdowns in a season. Even in a pass-dominant era of football, throwing for 35 touchdowns is no easy feat.
Aaron Rodgers is on pace to throw for well over 40 touchdowns, maybe even 50.
Do not take for granted how great Rodgers truly is.
He can add to his legacy by leading the Packers back to the Super Bowl. Green Bay is well on its way to taking care of business in Week 13. Bigger games await for No. 12.
